About Me

Sarah DeBlock, ERTY-200, RYT-500, YACEP

My Vision

I seek to create a safe space that can be your home away from home to connect with community and practice movement, breathwork, and meditation. I seek to empower students with tools to thrive, find their full potential, and feel connected to themselves and others. We all deserve to feel fully alive!

My Yogic Journey

I was introduced to yoga in 2011 when I was majoring in Chemical Engineering. During some difficult semesters, I was lucky to discover yoga’s incredible stress relieving benefits, and I contribute these yoga classes to helping me through the high-pressure environment I faced. Again in 2015, I experienced the healing force of yoga when I met yoga therapists at Rasa Yoga who helped me heal sciatica pain that had been ongoing for five years. My passion for yoga was already immense, but this solidified for me that I wanted to train in depth on yoga therapy for self-transformation and pass on this knowledge.

I contribute my training and knowledge of ayurveda yoga to many teachers in the lineage with my main influence coming from my guru Padma Shakti. Through her school Rasa Yoga, I obtained my RYT-200, RYT-500, CIAYT yoga therapy and Ayurveda certifications. I am currently pursuing my Ayurveda Health Counselor (AHC) certification in partnership with Yoga Veda Institute and Rasa Yoga. I completed my prenatal yoga specialization at Mind the Mat with experienced teachers Sara Vandergoot and Caroline Deitch.

Currently, I study under Padma Shakti, mentor Gayatri Asita, and sanskrit teachers Kristin and Randall Brooks. I would not be where I am today without the many teachers who have guided me and all the teachers who came before them. I am deeply grateful to their love and dedication.

What is Soma?

Soma is a Sanskrit word that is at the heart of yoga and ayurveda. A few translations are: rejuvenation, connecting to inner bliss, and the nectar of immortality.  Soma is essential for healing and can be used as a synonym for the lunar qualities of the moon — harmony, receptivity, nourishing, creativity, contentment, and magnetism.

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is a sister science to yoga which teaches how to live a holistic lifestyle for optimal health.  The philosophy illustrates how to balance our mind, body, and spirit in each season based on our own personal constitution.

When Ayurveda and Yoga are practiced together, the philosophy and practices combine to create a powerful healing system that can be applied to the needs of each individual.
